So I saw an Off-Broadway play The Directors Company last night that certainly is Broadway quality! What a great cast: @carlobosticco #clairebrownell #geoffreycantor @alisoncimmet @jazmingorsline @logan_james_hall #eddiekorbich . My Parsifal Conductor, a very fun and well written play by Allan Leicht and some awesome direction by Robert Kalfin!
Thank you Bob for inviting us to see it. And what a fun party with the cast and crew afterwards! Such a treat.

Mark your calendars!
Curious what our show is about? Dutch Culture USA captured it perfectly in an interview with us: http://bit.ly/2E3UVnQ
I’m looking back on a wonderful, inspiring and artistically fulfilling weekend. It started on Friday when Jack had invited a Broadway producer to come and see our rehearsal of “Carnival of Souls: The Neon Animation plus Live Action” . The show is significantly growing every time we work on it! And it is so much fun to find new things, to tweak here and there.
After our rehearsal in Midtown I went straight to Port Authority Bus Terminal to catch my bus Upstate New York. I traveled to gorgeous Mount Tremper where I stayed for the night before I started working on “Eleemosynary” with Marnie Andrews. This reading was full of fire and passion and the audience was very responsive! We were thrilled and the adrenaline was rushing through my body after the show.
I stayed for another night upstate to breathe the fresh air of the woods before returning back to the city on Sunday morning, just in time for the rehearsal of “One Woman’s Story”, the story of a woman who travels from America to Europe in 1938 to go on adventure and ends up being in the Bunker in 1945 as one of Hitler’s secretaries. What a great compelling story written by Fred Pezzulli, and I feel so fortunate to play the lead role of the woman and working along side 9 wonderful actors last night!
After a rehearsal in the afternoon and the performance in the evening, I got home, took a bath and went straight to bed. I fell asleep exhausted, but very happy and satisfied. What a weekend! Thank you New York for these fantastic acting experiences! I feel so fortunate to be here, amongst the fantastic people you can only find here and nowhere else!
What a true honor to be on stage with this wonderful and generous human being, and incredibly experienced and accomplished actor and director Marnie Andrews! Thank you Marnie for sharing with me this fantastically written play “Eleemosynary” by Lee Blessing. We were on fire tonight, telling the story of three generations of women. Starla, you were great as my daughter. What a Blessing indeed! And the audience loved it. They were laughing and crying. This is why I became an actress, to have moments like these, to feel the fire, the passion, the greatness of an extraordinary play and beautiful actors to work with, and audiences that are so giving! Thank you Kingston for this truly unforgettable experience!
I’m thrilled to announce that I have been accepted into the New York Theatre Workshop Playwriting Fall 2018 Program. I’m about to start my first class. The teacher is Kate Moira Ryan. This workshop will give me the tools and the time to turn my ideas for my new play about Einstein’s daughter into a full script.
Performing a new show for the first time in front of an audience is always both exciting and stressful. Especially this show. I have never worked on and performed something like “Carnival of Souls: Neon Animation with Live Action”. It is not only a one woman show, it is also very experimental and new. The Never Been Done Before Ever In The World kinda thing. After weeks of rehearsals in the dark with no one but Jack Feldstein – who wrote the script, neon animated the film and directed the piece – to see it, look at it and comment on it, it was so extremely special and beautiful to perform it in front of an audience late last night at Dixon Place in Manhattan.
What a great day it was! The whole day including tech rehearsal when we found out the beauty of the possibilities we had at Dixon Place. What an amazing theater. I want to thank Dixon Place and I want to thank you, the very special audience who saw our new, strange and experimental piece for the first time. Thank you to all of you who were there: Paulo, Jac, Barbara, Richard, Thirsa, Olivia and more. Thank you very very much for your support!
